If you are still on the hunt for a portable Bluetooth speaker, then the Sony SRS-XB100 might be a great option. The Sony XB10 is considered the smallest and most basic of the new audio devices in Sony’s range of Extra Bass Bluetooth Speakers. For its size, this trivial audio device provides a surprisingly solid sound with excellent bass and features an astounding battery life which can last for up to 16 hours of continuous playback time. You will find there are most mini speakers which sounds pretty bad, but there are some which are worth their price, and the Sony XB10 is one of the few devices which offers incredible bass and does not drown out the highs and mids.
Moreover, this device is all mono – it has one full-range driver near atop of the unit, and one passive bass radiator near the bottom. Another interesting feature is that this device comes with an attachable strap which enables the speakers to be effortlessly carried around, which also doubles as the stand. In addition, the Sony SRS-XB100 allows you to instantly connect and stream music effortlessly with Bluetooth-enabled devices without having any difficulties, thanks to its NFC connectivity. And if wireless is not your thing or you are probably using an ancient source, you can easily remove the rubber seal and connect to the Bluetooth speaker through the 3.5mm auxiliary port. This audio device is thoroughly water resistant, hence meaning that you can take it outdoor or even hang out by the pool without having to worry about it being destroyed by the errant or unexpected weather shift.
